I'm sure, all you mangloreans out there will agree with me that Avalakki Upkari is one of the most simple and tastiest snacks ever! I had it for the first time at my in-laws place after my wedding and I loved it instantly!! I tried making it myself many times since then, but never got the masala right. So this time, I got my mother- in-law to make it for me and it turned out as good as ever! Avalakki upkari makes a very good evening snack!! It also goes really well with Upppittu/ Upma for morning breakfast. Here's the recipe:
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
- Grind together red chillies, jeera and coriander seeds to form a smooth powder.
- Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl; Add the masala powder and toss well. Adjust ingredients according to taste.
- Temper with mustard, curry leaves, hing and haldi.
- Serve with hot tea/coffee and enjoi!
